ISO 9001:2015 was published in September 2015, and organizations have until September 2018 to upgrade their Quality Management System to comply with ISO 9001:2015.
The revised standard asks organizations to pay particular attention to:
- Increased emphasis on top management engagement with ISO9001 (Clause 5)
- Managing change (Clause 6)
- Performance and evaluation (Clause 7)
- Management review (Clause 9)
- Risk-based approach (Clause 4)
Certified organizations recognise that the standard helps them to become a more consistent competitor in the marketplace. By ensuring that they develop a strong focus on quality management, ISO9001 certified organizations are able to more effectively attract and subsequently meet the needs of high value customers.
